History

The business was originally established in 1992 and first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1996. In 1997 it acquired Fiscal Properties plc and Croydon Land & Estates Limited. In 1999 it went on to acquire English & Overseas Properties plc and Chesterfield Properties Limited. In 2002 it purchased Wembley (London) Limited, owners of the land around the stadium in Wembley, north London[1] and later that year entered into a contract with the Government to develop the Greenwich Peninsula.[2]

At one stage, property investor Paul Kemsley invested heavily in the company. He then sold his shares to HBOS, which tried unsuccessfully to take over the company.[3]

Structure

The Group is organised as follows:

  • Special Projects
  • Fund management
  • Investment Portfolio

At 31 March 2007 its portfolio was valued at £1.1bn.[4]

Fund Management

Three Specialist Funds

  • Quercus
  • Quantum
  • iQ

Quintain Fund Management uses specialist property expertise to create value in three sectors with high barriers to entry: healthcare, student accommodation and science parks.

Each fund is underpinned by strong demographics such as an ageing population and increasing numbers of people entering higher education. The Funds interact with Quintain's other businesses, taking space on our major schemes, using the asset management skills within the Investment Portfolio and generating income that is used across the Group.
